I checked digital signals from Como on 4th and 5th August in Bridge Rd and Cotter street and had no problems using an electronic antenna at ground level. All channels produced a BER of 1-oe7 with an Mer
from 38 to 34. Why was it so when the tests were done in designated black spots directly behind the new sky scrapper currently being built 300 meters on the north side of Como? jr2005.
Which end of Cotter St? the mary st end you could probably see the transmitting antennas You maybe getting reflected signals , signals off the edge of the building any number of possibilities. without looking at a spectrum it's kind of hard to know what you were getting.
Anything in about a 40 degree arc north has been seriously impacted. Like all terrestrial reception it varies, some people will just have reduced field strength and impacted BER/MER whilst others will go over the cliff and others will have no signal at all.
In the last month I've done probably a dozen jobs in the blocks between lennox st and church st Richmond, more further north in Richmond and Abbotsford, and Clifton Hill and Northcote. Some have lost a few channels some lose all. Most now have good digital from MT Dandenong.
